It's been too long since we had a good, old-fashioned stroller gawking around here. As it turns out, a new Joolz Bloom was recently delivered to a dad-to-be in the midwest, who we'll call G Dawg. Because that's what I expect his friends will shout when he rolls up with this mad, "Bugaboo-meets-Xplory-and-Quinny in an Amsterdam boutique hotel" babywhip. G Dawg's photoset of the Bloom are in the daddytypes pool on flickr:
Just took delivery of a red Joolz Bloom. Went through Babytrader.eu. There was a special so the pram (stroller) with bassinet and diaper bag and shopping bag (good for a few cans of soda?) cost $1050 U.S. delivered to [our state].Thanks, G Dawg, and good luck!
If you've ever put together IKEA furniture you know what the instructions are like. Took me two hours- I am a freaking surgeon!
Solidly constructed, powder coated aluminum. Turns well (the Quinny Buzz turns better, but is lower)
The bassinet is huge. Worth it for six months. I may let the tyke sleep in it all the time...I may be kidding.
It's slick. My fellow...well fellows at work called it the Ferrari of strollers. It's like, if I gotta push it I may as well look good. Wonder if I could pass off a wagon Audi RS4 on the wife?
It took about 3 weeks to get here from Amsterdam. My colleague called and said I had boxes from..."Amsterdam"...ominously as though it was from house of hashish or something.
It's nice. It's a stroller at the end of the day, but it puts the tyke higher, it's not a dang bugaboo (too plentiful in [our city]). Plus it'll surprise my wife at her baby shower.
Sure I won't see another one in [our town], doubt I'll see one in [our city]...maybe NYC?
